If you have a few million to spend on a home, Lake Tahoe may be a good choice. The views are not cheap but what is? The area is to die for. Skiing and gambling are just the beginning. The lake is beautiful and if you can stand colder water boating and swimming can be enjoyed. I have spent some time at the lake and you cant beat it for beauty. The rocky shores are amazing. The casinos light up the ripples in the water at night making it magical. Art Falcone can be the man in this area. Just take that chance and Lake Tahoe will not disappoint you.
